Mr Joshua Aguda, aspiring Youth Organiser for the Tema East branch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called on Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to fix the economy to make Ghanaians comfortable.
He said the widespread hardship in the country was a testament to the fact that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government’s economic policies were ineffectual.
Mr Aguda who was speaking in an interview with Journalists in Tema said Ghanaians now know that Vice President Bawumia who had, together with President Akufo-Addo, led the charge to brand the predecessor NDC government as incompetent was not living up to expectation.
He said there have been unprecedented slow-down in Ghana’s economy, and even market women were praying and fasting on daily basis to make sales.
“We all remember Dr. Bawumia shouting that Mahama was incompetent and that ‘the money was there’… where is all that money now? Under Dr Bawumia, the government cannot employ even medical doctors.
“Trained nurses are crying for jobs, graduates do not have jobs and now armed robbery is on the ascendancy because there are no jobs and all these are happening under the nose of Dr. Bawumia who told us that the money was there!”
Joshua Agudah said the upsurge of insecurity in the country was directly at the doorsteps of the Vice President as he is the Chairman of Ghana’s Police Council that is supposed to tackle crime.
“Just a year into the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government, armed robbery has become widespread in the country with insecurity all over the place.”
Mr Agudah said the payment of $2.5million for the scarcely used Ghana Post GPS App was a mark of misuse of government funds.
